Default Toilet Wars! Gone too Far. Stay out of Women's restrooms

I try to have an open mind. I do. But this has gone too far. Male, female, and transgender..........

I said this would happen and here it is
Man Undressing in Women's Room Cites Transgender Rule


All I can say is, he better be glad it was not my wife or daughter....

Interesting. Apparently the law contains some loopholes that allows incidents like this to happen.

Are you surprised Rick?
I recently started working out at the local YMCA and was surprised to find there were no less than 4 separate locker rooms… One each for common males or females and one each for said common males or females that have children with them. Guess we need another for “all other”.

That is one of the things they did not think of. I thought of it as soon as all this started. New buildings will need to have "extra" places for those that chose to not use the men's or ladies facilities. Costs will soar. Then how are the mom and pop's places going to cope? Lose long time customers because of the one or two? My main thing is, how do you keep out the perverts? For me it is not about discrimination, or even, religious beliefs (yes , I do believe) but the true safety of citizens. This is a chance to maybe stop that one person from being assaulted or even killed before it actually happens. I know, they could just wait outside. But outside , someone might see something or hear the scream.

They just voted in as part of a broader scope of things the bathroom thing in Charlotte NC. 7 to 4. But there is already a big stir to prevent it from actually happening in the local government. Going to try to block it or get it thrown out all together

Some of the old swimming baths in this area were all fitted out with individual changing cubicals with enough room for a parent and a child or for a solo person, each had a door with a key which was given to you when you paid to get in. These cubicals were at poolside with males one side, females on the other and parents and children at the ends, but anyone could use any cubical. They were all the same. Toilets were similar with individual single closets all doors were ceiling to floor. No urinal's were available.
It worked well but was done away with when a new leisure centre was build and two changing rooms were built as is normal in most areas now so the same problem now happens.
The design was made I think to save on staffing as once people entered the pool area they used a cubicle to get changed then came out locked their possessions in and went for a swim One staff member was on patrol to help with lost keys or faulty locks two other were lifeguards. Pool use was limited to match the number of cubicles, separation was mainly to cut down on messing about. Swimming was organised in forty minutes slots from what I remember you could buy a number of slots indicated by coloured armbands ie thick coloured elastic bands so staff had a visual indication on when a person's time was up.
Could be a good system but would mean total rebuilds as a big space is needed all around the pool.

Didn't read anybody's comment, but I will say this...only in America.

A land where they try to turn humans into robots.

Have fun taking your humanity away from you. Long live Political Correctness...Not!

Agreed, In most of the rest of the world breast are for feeding the young, a ***** is convenient when you have to pee no matter where you are at, and a ****** is the canal of life. All of the parts are multi-taskers, but they are known and understood for their most common uses. No big deal.

Here they are thought of as strictly for porn and perverts.

But in terms of countries the USA is in it's early teens. Sadly we act like Beavis and Butthead too often.

I do too, I live here, but you have to admit, there are some Americans that do some really stupid things.

We just tend to do them on a grander scale than most of the rest of the world.
